Get Your Dirty Hair To Look Good This Summer!

Designer Lela Rose recently presented her 2011 Resort collection and collaborated with some amazing professionals to get her models looking beachy beautiful and summer irresistible. Beauty.com had Michael Shaun Corby, Alterna and celebrity makeup artist Napoleon Perdis transform the gals into warm weather vixens with coral lips, peachy/nude eyes and casual faux bobs. The makeup was subtle yet mesmerizing and the hair looked effortless chic.
Having a great warm weather hair style is important in the summer. I tend to be out and about much more when it's nice out and want my hair to be a willing participant in all the fun. Unfortunately, humidity often puts a giant sweaty damper on my hair's parade. Fortunately, thanks to Beauty.com I had the pleasure of trying out some summer-friendly products and my hair is officially hooked.
Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Dry Shampoo has saved me from the days when a good hair wash is needed but impossible to squeeze in. Girls you understand. Unless you have an adorable cropped bob, the hair washing process can take what feels like forever. I'm not a fan of walking around with wet hair on my way to work and I have to set aside some serious blow drying time to have it not look like a bird's nest. Also, since I've been trying to work out as much as possible (we'll see how long that lasts) it feels like I have to wash/dry every day. Not a big fan of that either. I look best with at least day-old hair. Amazingly, this dry shampoo takes the sweaty oils out of my strands and adds sexy volume in its place. I know! Amazing tradeoff right!?
I've also been using Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Working Hair Spray which makes styling my 'do actually manageable. The spray is infused with caviar (a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids) and the Age-Control Complex increases the elasticity and strength of your hair. I've never had the type of tresses that cooperate when I want a pretty ponytail, a voluminous pompadour, or general sleekness (frizz, cowlicks and rattails have been my hair's usual MO), so I'm realizing how important my relationship with hairspray really is. It's been sort of a revelation that when you spray it on, your hair actually does what you want it to do. How novel!
These two hair tools are perfect to throw in your work, gym, or beach bag, especially when you're not sure what you're going to be doing after and how much time you'll have to prep. Both helped extend the life of my blow out and made my hair looked refreshed, polished and ready to be seen-anywhere.
So remember, you can transform your dirty strands into your best hair day ever by using the right products! Thanks to Beauty.com and Lela Rose's team for introducing me to such runway ready products!
